About the Organization
IBC16 is a blog dedicated to the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016. It is an initiative started by
the students of the Graduate Insolvency Program (Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs) in an attempt
to contribute to India’s burgeoning restructuring community. We believe that a new profession under
a new law deserves an appropriately fresh and modern platform.
IBC16 is accepting submissions in the form of articles, case comments, research pieces and opinions
which explore contemporary developments and topical themes in insolvency and bankruptcy laws.
Manuscripts should demonstrate a nexus to insolvency law, non-adherence to which, would lead to a
Manuscripts would be evaluated on several aspects, including but not limited to, originality, structure,
coherence, clarity of expression, identification of judicial trends and incorporation of cross-domain
analysis. Purely descriptive pieces are not encouraged.
Section X, IBC16’s judgment search portal, has got your case law research covered – the only place
online where you can find and download any NCLT/NCLAT judgment — with just a click.
Students enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral program in any law school, legal
professional training school, or executive programmes (CA, CS etcetera). Research Associates,
Academicians, Educators, practitioners and professionals interested or involved in the area are also
eligible to submit.
